Press release date: August 24, 2010

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - ASTM International and Environmental Data Resources (EDR) announce an online course offering for ASTM E1527, Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process.

ASTM E1527 was first published in 1993 and has been revised numerous times since, most recently in 2005. It is one of the most widely published and distributed ASTM standards, and is used in commercial real estate transactions more than 220,000 times each year. Today, the process of performing Phase I Site Assessments is largely driven by the lending industry in advance of closing commercial loans. The purpose of E1527 is to specify environmental due diligence for the objective of achieving landowner liability protections (LLPs) under Super Fund. ASTM has offered an in-person training course on E1527 since 1993 and continues to offer it several times a year at various locations in the United States.

This is the first time that an online technical and professional training course has been offered by ASTM International. The online course features 12 modules of content offered over three weeks and is equivalent to the existing 16-hour in-person course. Participants are able to complete the material at times convenient to them during the three-week time period. Existing course instructors are online daily to facilitate communication, answer questions and participate in forum discussions. Additionally, the instructors will host an online conference call each week to discuss relevant topics and answer any questions that participants may have.

For the remainder of 2010, E1527 online training courses are scheduled for the following dates: Sept. 20, Oct.12 and Nov. 1. Click here to register.

The cost for the course is $895 USD and includes copies of ASTM E1527, course notes, case studies, and information about ASTM and Committee E50 on Environmental Assessment, Risk Management and Corrective Action.
